Heritage Foundation on Budget & Economy
While Pres. Obama runs around warning everyone of economic devastation, it's the President's policies that are truly harmful to the economy, DeMint said. "He's tried to discredit capitalism, and now he's trying to make a case that the only way to grow the economy is to continue to grow spending."
Heritage recommends an approach to budgeting that would set the country back on a prosperous track. "We want to see the country on a 10-year path to a balanced budget that creates some financial stability," DeMint said. "We need some pro-growth policies like good, simple tax reform and entitlement reform to give some certainty out over the next 10 years."
